Hey you two: I know that Bill doesn't think JW is the bees knees, but for what it's worth, I'd say you really do have to see him live, and it can even come across in video. I'd rent/buy Black Pool LIghts, an excellent music video/concert, and I think you'll be impressed. Think of how most of our "hero" lead players made a huge splash in about 2-4 yrs (Jimi, Jimi, Eric, etc.), and then, realize, he's obviously been around quite some time...

I liked him v much, but wasn't blown away til I saw his live material. Smokes...if you like CREAM, Jimi, etc., you pretty much HAVE to like JW, at least in the WStripes mode at their peak in the early to mid 2000s, IMHO (which it IS on this topic...).
